The other day my boss had a birthday. And my colleagues and I have decided to arrange a celebratory party. Everyone had to contribute financially or organizationally. I decided to give as gifts to prepare a cake for guests who expect more than 30 people.
Looking ahead, I will say that the cake turned out delicious, and the birthday girl and guests were ecstatic. But this article is not about taste, but about how much cost me this gift.
For all the cakes in the confectionery is counted my grocery costs, therefore, to count, I approached the table, and that's what I did.
Immediately I say, that this calculation excluding the time spent and the cost of electricity and water. These parameters are in a candy store I consider a separate item of expenditure.
The plate with the calculations, I'll show you, different from the one I use at home, but it has all of the costs. Cost of products considered to shop prices, but I usually buy in bulk, so my cake came out even cheaper.
As can be seen from the table, I did not save on the ingredients. Only one alcohol took on 342 rbl., But you can not add or use a more affordable option.
The total cost of the cake was 1260 rubles. Weight gain of 5 kgBut I still trim cakes, which I consider to waste. What do I do with them, I explain below.
I was wondering how much cost a piece of cake for the guest. To this end, I have divided the value of the number of guests. 1260/33 = 38 rubles. And this is not a tiny piece, and normal portion 150 c.
But I remind you that I still have scraps of biscuits. I added to it the remainder of the cream, stir and made cakes "potato". They received 11 units of 60 g each.
Since I did not use any additional ingredients to potatoes, it can be assumed that they have received for free. So to speak, a by-product.
What is the result. I made the cake for 5 kg, received a bonus of 11 pieces potato cakes. A I spent on everything about everything just 1260 rubles. Cake made from natural ingredients and in such amount is now can not buy.
P.S. By the way, you do not need to repeat my cake in 5 kg, you can cook it pound version. The cost of 1 kg will be 252 rubles.
